So much for managing his anger.

Sources tell TMZ that Charlie Sheen has blown such a significant gasket at Anger Management co-star Selma Blair that he's essentially fired the actress from his atrocious series.

Yes, following his hilarious rant against Farrah Abraham, the actor has now gone off in a far more serious manner against Blair.

He's reportedly peeved that she complained to producers about Sheen's chronic lateness and poor work ethic.

Lindsay Lohan has been cast as a love interest for Charlie Sheen on his FX hit Anger Management. The actress will play herself in an episode of the show.

Lohan will reportedly engage in a romantic relationship with Sheen’s character after becoming his therapy patient, which is hilarious for two reasons:

  • Charlie and Lindsay worked together on Scary Movie 5, during which she was reportedly repulsed by sharing a love scene with him.
  • Sheen reportedly gave the cash-strapped star A HUNDRED GRAND to help with her massive tax problems, and she never even said thanks.

“I’m still waiting for a text to say, ‘Thank you.’ Anything, you know?” Charlie later said of his six-figure attempt to "pay it forward" to his co-star.

Nothing says thanks like a ratings boost?

It's terribly sad but true: Charlie Sheen really is winning.

The actor has reason to celebrate today (hooker and cocaine-free, we hope) because FX has picked up his Anger Management sitcom for 90 additional episodes. Yes, 90.

Charlie Sheen as Charlie Goodson

The network was forced to complete the order after making an unusual agreement with Sheen and the series: if it performed well enough, FX wouldn't just order a second season comprised of 10 installments.

No, it would go all out and guarantee 90 more, which takes the total number to 100 and, in all likelihood, the series in to syndication. Which could net Sheen $100 million in all.

Why make such a deal with such a trouble star? Who the heck knows. But might have something to do with money.

Let's hope Sheen continues to use his for a good cause.

Hmmm... what's the opposite of winning?

A week after his new sitcom posted historic numbers for FX - becoming the network's most-watched premiere of all-time - Charlie Sheen and Anger Management plummeted back to reality last Thursday night.

The third episode of the series brought in 3.37 million viewers overall, a 38 percent drop from the prior week. A similar decline was experienced in the coveted advertiser demographic of 18-49-year olds, as 35 percent fewer (2.65 million) tuned in for week two.

Still, if the latter figures hold steady, Anger Management will be considered a wild success for a cable comedy, on par with Wilfred (2.5 million) and way ahead of Louie (1.4 million).

Prepare yourselves if this comes true, people: FX has signed an unusual deal with Sheen that promises an addition 90 - yes, 90! - episodes if the sitcom is picked up beyond the initial 10.

His career has taken many turns. So has his personal life.

But Charlie Sheen recently admitted in an interview with Matt Lauer that he isn't even sure who that reckless moron from the first half of 2011 was, and now he's asking TV viewers for another chance. A 24th, by the actor's count.

So Sheen jokes - it's not really a joke, is it? - in the following trailer, which promotes the June 28 premiere of his upcoming FX comedy, Anger Management.

The star anchors the sitcom as an athlete-turned-therapist. Will you give Sheen the opportunity he so desires? Watch the latest promo now and then decide:

Charlie Sheen is on his way back into our living room: his FX sitcom premieres in June.

What made that network take a chance on the troubled actor? President and general manager John Landgraf was asked this question by reporters yesterday at the Television Critics Association press tour and said he was "as skeptical as you might imagine" when he first walked in to a pitch meeting with Sheen. But then...

Future FX Star

"I saw [a very different Charlie Sheen] in the room, and what I heard was a really good pitch for a comedy series - funny, complicated, and I think the character that Charlie ought to be playing at this point."

Sheen claims he's no longer a crazy person, and Landgraf is banking on the public being as forgiving of the star's crazy actions as he's trying to be.

Charlie Sheen is officially headed back to television.

FX has picked up Anger Management, outbidding two other networks for a series that will feature Sheen as a therapist with a short temper and will be based on the 2003 movie that starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.

The sitcom will premiere with 10 episodes next summer, with FX already agreeing to 90 more if ratings are strong.

"We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie's acting talents - and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play," says John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks. "Two and a Half Men has been an outstanding component of FX's schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well."

This will mark the actor's first gig since he was fired by CBS for being positively insane.

Will you tune in to Sheen's upcoming series?

Over 27 million people tuned in for the season nine premiere of Two and a Half Men, anxious to see what all the Ashton Kutcher-related hype was about.

Since then, however, ratings have dropped steadily for the CBS sitcom, which remains one of the most-watched show on television, yet has lost about 10 million households since its September opener.

Charlie Sheen thinks he knows the problem and, no, he isn't about to blame Ashton Kutcher's sordid personal life. The actor simply tells INF Daily that the show isn't very good, he's "extremely disappointed" with the way producers are "handling what I left behind" and ratings are poor because:

"People aren't stupid ... not all of them."

What do you think, readers? Whose version of Two and a Half Men do you prefer?

Over 28 million people tuned in for the season nine premiere of Two and a Half Men, but one viewer in particular has made headlines for his take on Ashton Kutcher's debut.

What did Charlie Sheen think of his replacement?

The Debut of Walden Schmidt

After referring to Jon Cryer as a "freaking genius," Sheen told Access Hollywood late last week: "I think everybody won. I thought the show was really good. I thought [Ashton] was terrific."

Sheen is likely including himself in this list of winners, considering he'll bank $100 million off the show over the next few years.
